The Green Pajamas

A Long Way From Home

You've come a long way from the runny-nosed and scruffy kid I knew You had such good ways I can remember the little things that always made you smile They made you happy Now you think you're wiser because you're older And you think that money buys everything And you think you need no one to guide you But you're still a long way from home You've come a long way, you're self-assured and dressed in funny clothes But you don't know me I hope you find what you are looking for With your car and handmade overcoats But your wealth will never make you stronger 'Cos you're still a long way from home Yes, you're still a long way from home _______________________ Written by Ray Davies Recorded by the Green Pajamas for a Kinks tribute CD titled, "The Modern Genius Of Ray Davies" free with MOJO Magazine, March 2006
"While Seattle was going grunge crazy in the late '80s and early '90s, Jeff Kelly and Joe Ross's Green Pajamas were still listening to The Beatles, The Hollies and The Kinks, funnelling their influences into a psychedelic sound of their own. This version of The Kinks' understated 1970 track is a prime example of the Pajamas' genuinely heartfelt and decidedly grunge-free attitude." - MOJO magazine, March 2006
